  1. Beautifull pictures, thank you. Your Geraldi mulberry is gorgeous, i hope to be able to find one in Europe this fall.

    Can you please give me the botanical name of your “Perennial wild bean” ? I would like to make some research on edibility and hardiness, thanks !

  2. Hello Eric toensmeier. I am very satisfied by all your descriptions. Also you are the one who gave me the motivation to start my edible landscape project. I will focus principally on perennial as a goal and a root crop diet as a main food. Last time i found the pignut back in my yard in a woodland in france and i found it interesting. But it yield not a lot. I would like to ask you a question. Do you think it is possible to cultivate it in pot, it probably may depend of the root system witch i don’t know if it has deep root or not ?? And do you have information about breeding it to get it bigger ? Thx you for all you do and your amazing work eric
